About this app

RealVNC Viewer remote desktop

RealVNC® Viewer turns your phone into a remote desktop, giving you instant access to your Mac, Windows and Linux computers from anywhere in the world. You can view your computer's desktop remotely, and control its mouse and keyboard as though you were sitting down in front of it.

Just visit and download RealVNC Connect remote access software to each computer you want to control. Then sign in to RealVNC Viewer on your device using your RealVNC account credentials. Your remote computers automatically appear; simply tap one to screen share.

Alternatively, you can connect directly to RealVNC Connect with an Enterprise subscription or VNC-compatible software from third parties by entering the remote computer's IP address. Note that you may need to configure firewalls and port forward routers.

RealVNC Connect password-protects each remote computer out-of-the-box (you may need to enter the same user name and password you use to log in to your computer). All sessions are then encrypted end-to-end.

During a session, your device's touch screen serves as a trackpad to give you precise control of the remote desktop. Drag your finger to move the remote mouse cursor and tap anywhere to left-click (other gestures such as right-click and scroll are explained in-app).

RealVNC are the original inventors of VNC remote access technology, and we're confident you'll love what RealVNC Viewer has to offer. If you're still not convinced, check out our reviews!

It does exactly what it says it on the tin: a fast, near seamless VNC tunnel for the low price of nothing. [Edit: 9/21/2023] I'm fairly annoyed with the updated layout of VNC. Everyone wants to look like Apple these days, so everything in the UI ends up becoming round and non-customizable. There's a massive button in the top right of your screen that cannot be hidden, moved, or managed. Frankly, it gets on my nerves, so I'll be docking my review until the old swipe-down menu returns.

The updates are getting worse and worse. When the toolbar was originally undocked it was a bit annoying but workable. Now with the movable toolbar i thought it would fix that, however now it becomes completely unusable when the "mouse" or keyboard controls are on screen because it disappears completely. In the mouse mode there's an X to close that (which is garbage i just want the bar up there) but in keyboard mode there's is absolutely nothing at all.

Thank you for keeping this app updated! Works for both over the network and local connections. I am using it to view operating systems that are being emulated using Termux. Both apps are working perfectly. You just have to know the correct address of what you want to view. The new toolbar is not really needed to view the keyboard if you have the app ShowKey.
